Deep Blue Universe

by deepspace

Quiet Planet 05:12


The eleventh studio album by Australian/German/French composer Mirko Ruckels, known as deepspace.

From the briny depths, these tracks rise slowly like vast bubbles, moving alongside each other towards the sunlit surface. The opening track Hallucinogen 1 (And Now We May Dream) offers a slow motion entryway into a blue void, a place to lose one's sense of stable identity and to just be a cloud of sensations absorbing sound and imagined light. Are You Purple is a childlike dream sequence (inspired by the artist’s 4 year old daughter stating that she would ask Santa if he was purple upon meeting him). Primordial Oceans evokes the darkness of the ocean, moving through strange underwater dioramas. Spiral Universe, originally the title for the album, evokes a warm and melancholic rendition of the fantasy of perfect and infinite armchair space travel. Figures in the Dim Light recalls a nineties ambient sound, with inter-twining sparse melodies over a shrouded backdrop, much like the title suggests. Vertical Landscapes paints a high desert, vertically suspending into the sky. Quiet Planet closes the album with something different: subtle piano impressions added to the deepspace sound, recalling Map of the Pleiades from 2007's Barometric Sea.
